Crock pot Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwich

LifeAfterGluten Pulled Pork BBQ Recipe

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ingredients

  • 3 pound boneless pork roast
  • 6 pack of GOOD cane sugar root beer
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 2 bottles of your favorite BBQ sauce (36oz) – make sure it’s gluten free!
  • Dill pickle slices
  • GF Cole Slaw (optional)

Directions

  1. Place the pork roast in a medium sized crock pot. Using a long knife, cut long slits (8-10) in the pork, from one side to the other. Pour 5 of the 6 root beers over top of the pork until it’s all but covered. Add the salt (2tsp).
  2. Now open the last (refrigerated) root beer and enjoy while you turn the crock pot on low and tidy up your kitchen. This recipe turns out best when you cook it low & slow for 8+ hours. You may even want to cook it overnight on the low setting. After the initial cooking, the meat should be tender and falling apart. If not, cook it longer, low & slow. When cooked, drain the root beer juice from your crock pot and pull the pork – by knife, by fork, by tongs, by hand (be careful, it’s hot!) but get the pork nice and pulled and then back into the crock pot to spend some time with your favorite BBQ sauce. Pour the sauce (amount to your liking) over the pork and cook for another 2 hours, stirring every hour – longer if you like, provided you can keep your family out of the kitchen, as the smell will be attracting relatives you didn’t even know you had. Feel free to add water as it will cook down, especially if you need to cheat and finish things on HIGH.
  3. Season accordingly. Salt, pepper, garlic, onion and Tabasco are all fair game.
  4. Set the pickles on the kitchen table. Grab the Cole Slaw likewise. Set the crock on a trivet in the center of the table, no worries – it’ll stay hot for about 3 hours. Wrap the Udi’s Burger Buns in a slightly damp (clean) kitchen towel and heat in the oven or microwave. When the buns are hot & ready, assemble your sandwich with BBQ, pickles, slaw if you like and even a little mustard.
  5. Serve with chips, green beans, baked beans or perhaps our cheesy potato casserole. Mmmmm! Some folks like a little vinegar in the BBQ added near the end of crock pot cooking. Play with this as an advanced technique and go easy. Remember, you can always add more but taking some out can be quite challenging. ENJOY 🙂
